7:02 am
country said that chile is a different country than it was before this ordeal. it is stronger today. as they were able to turn what could have become a tragedy into a triumph. with his fellow miners returned to safety, luisuzura said good-bye to the rescuers and entered the capsule, finally it was his turn. [ chanting ] 32 miners had already taken the ride. up a 2,000-foot shaft cut through solid rock. above ground, more chants of celebration. this time, sensing chile's 70-day national or deal was finally coming to a conclusion. just before 10:00 p.m., urzua emerged. he insisted on being the last one out. he hugged president pinera and said we have done what the
7:03 am
entire world was waiting for. then, the day-long celebration hit a new pitch. >> tonight, we have experienced a night that we will never forget. each time i had the chance to hug the miners they were so happy because they were experiencing a kind of rebirth. >> reporter: but although the $22 million rescue mission an overwhelming success, those six rescue workers had to make it back safely. one by one they returned until just one man remained. and with his return to the surface, chile's national nightmare ended better than anyone might have dreamed. for 22 hours in seemingly without a hitch, the miners came up. the operation so efficient it sped up over the course of the day. and each time the same heart-wrenching scene played out. family and friends who've been
7:04 am
staying here at camp hope are beginning to make the way home. hopeful only for their future. now, you might remember that initially they predicted it could be a 48-hour-long rescue. well, it was less than 24 hours. and you might remember in the beginning suggesting a christmas rescue and here we are in the middle of the october. the president of chile used to own a television station and, indeed, appears to be a picture-perfect orchestrated event. maggie? >> seth doane, thank you. jose sanchez is outside the mine since the very first day. he had three family members, victor, esteban and pablo trapped inside. and he joins us this morning from chile. good morning, sir. first, i'd like to ask you what it was like to be part of the massive celebration we watched. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: it was tremendous.
7:05 am
at first, we saw the reality of the situation. and after coming to the top, and to be with us, we celebrated until about 2:00 in the morning. >> how are you family members doing? [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: everybody's good. everybody is happy. waiting to be reunited. they're in the hospital now but we're waiting to see them in person. >> have they said what was the most difficult part of their experience? [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: when we first got there, we didn't know anything but the situation. and the owners of the mine left everything abandoned and were left and the miners were left
7:06 am
alone. >> do you know if they'll go back to their work as miners? [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: no, no members of the family want them to continue working as miners. at least none of the family members do. we don't want to live the same experience again. >> what are they looking forward to in the future? [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: my brother-in-law writes songs, plays a guitar, accordion, all sorts of instruments. he could dedicate himself to music or to writing a story of what happened. >> jose sanchez, thank you, sir. we wish you all the best. [ speaking foreign language ] >> translator: thank you all for supporting us from so far away.
7:07 am
>> you're welcome. now here's harry. >> all right, maggie. here to talk about what happens next for the miners is colonel tom kolditz, chairman of the department of behavioral signs. colonel, good morning. >> thanks, harry. >> let's talk a little bit about -- they're out. but we really witnessed something very interesting as those miners were under ground. they had meetings every day. there was a leadership structure. how will this serve them as they now are above ground? >> well, that structure while they were down in the mine really protected them from a lot of stress and trauma that they otherwise would have felt. the challenge down there was a lack of certainty, volatility, ambiguity and a leader can take structure and purpose and put it into a group and literally create feelings of certainty and hope in the group by doing that. >> even when there almost doesn't seem to be any. >> absolutely. >> yeah. would you say, go so far as to
7:08 am
say having gone what they have and moments of total hopelessness that they will have endured some sort of post traumatic stress? >> it is likely a percentage of these miners will experience some long-term stress reactions. and that can take anywhere from six to nine months to e moerch after the trauma. we need to watch them for a while. however, some will get out of the mine, they will have a one-week to three-week adjustment period and then be just fine. >> yeah. what would be the things that if somebody called you up and said, give us a little advice of what to expect in terms of behavior of these guys, what would be the things you would be wary or cautious about? >> what we'll see first of all is a complete disruption of the sleep patterns. they will have difficulty sleeping. they will have nightmares. sort of jet lag only worse. and so that's going to create friction in the families and
7:09 am
takes time to work through and adjust but most of them will be able to do that. >> yeah. it's interesting as we were talking around the office, these guys will be instant celebrities. and that may be something that they're least prepared for. certainly go down in the mine. certain things that come through your safety instruction and all that other stuff. the celebrity part might be the hardest part of all. >> it could be. it will definitely tend to pull this group apart, pull individuals in different directions. it's very hard work. and they're tired right now. so they're going to have to balance their rest and recovery with all the notoriety and fame. >> what a story. colonel, thank you for being here. appreciate your service, as well. >> thank you. >> here's maggie. we turn to politics and the senate race in delaware. last night's first debate between the two candidates got national attention because of various statements because of one of them. christine o'donnell. nancy cordes is at the university of delaware where the
7:10 am
debate was held. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, maggie. well, this debate involved two candidates but the spotlight was really on one of them. christine o'donnell and her history of controversial comments. >> on this specific quote that you said that cli that has a plan to take over america, do you know about this plan? >> they misquoted me at the time, i believe. but look at what's going on. >> reporter: the financial troubles also came up. >> how can voters rely upon your thoughts on how to manage the deficit if you're having such personal financial issues of your own? >> when i fell upon difficult times, i made the sacrifices needed to set things right. i sold my house. and i sold a lot of my possessions. >> reporter: outside the auditorium, several witches milled about. some for o'donnell. some against. her now infamous ad came up more than once.
7:11 am
>> there's been lots of discussion in the national media of things she has said or done that i think frankly are distraction from the core issues that delawareans ask about. >> you're jealous you weren't on skt saturday night live." >> because i'm not a witch and if i am do you really want to cross me? >> reporter: the national attention on this race seemed to put both o'donnell and the democrat chris coons on edge. >> cause them to -- >> we'll try to have a conversation instead of just a diatribe if we could. >> reporter: o'donnell struggled to name a supreme court decision she disagreed with. >> i'll put it up on my website. >> reporter: and refused to say her views on evolution. >> it's irrelevant what i believe. >> reporter: o'donnell spent the night on the attack because she's 20 points behind in the polls accusing the opponent of one point of being a marxist and
7:12 am
one of the few light moments he said i'm a lifelong capitalist. maggie? >> nancy, we could see it on tv and make decisions of how she handled herself but what was the feeling of the people on campus and her performance last night? >> reporter: we talked to students. o'donnell seemed to surpass the expectations because their expectations were so low but, frankly, they didn't come away thrilled with either candidate. they thought he was condescending and she was very vague. these two kachcandidates have another chance to impress the voters s today. they're debating today. >> thank you, nancy. lots more news this morning. erica hill is back and at the news desk. good morning. >> good morning. we begin with a record number of foreclosures in this country. banks seized more than 28 8,000 homes july to september. that's according to realty

track, a foreclosure listing service and the number up 22% from last year. at that rate, home repossessions will surpass the 1 million mark this year. officials in 50 states opened an investigation into allegations that banks okayed thousands of foreclosures without reading the documentation or in some cases using false documents. protesters clashing with police this morning at the ancient acropolis in athens. they were demanding as much as 22 months in back pay after a scuffle, though, you can see a little bit there, police broke up the demonstration. the head of a new afghan peace council says the taliban are ready to negotiate. they said this morning that the taliban do have some conditions to start the talks but initial discussions have taken place. senior nato official says forces will allow for safe passage to kabul for the senior taliban leaders wishing to attend the peace talks.

good morning. 7:25. i'm juliette goodrich. time for headlines. no reports on injuries in the apartment fire along a major street this morning. but some residents have been evacuated. the fire is in the 1700 block of calaveras boulevard near north temple drive. oakland city officials going to court trying to keep members of a gang from hanging out together. they're seeking an injunction against dozens of gang members in the fruit vale area. a similar injunction earlier this year targeted a gang in north oakland. drivers going from the east bay to the peninsula today should stay off the san mateo bridge. cal trans closed one of the westbound lanes after inspectors found a cracked steel beam under the roadway near the high-rise. the emergency repair work could

good morning. well, as you may have heard juliette just mentioned they're doing emergency repair work on the san mateo bridge. the right lane is closed just before you get to the high-
7:28 am
rise. drive time not looking too bad. still holding steady about 16 minutes from hayward toward foster city. these are the westbound lanes. looks like it's starting to get slow about mid flat section out to the high-rise. let's go to our maps. pretty heavy traffic right now on southbound 880 even getting to the san mateo bridge. backed up from at least a street. then looks like what a lot of people are doing is avoiding the san mateo bridge altogether and using the don barton instead. 880 through newark. the don barton or bay bridge good alternates. that's your traffic. for your forecast here's lawrence. beautiful start to the day for you. over to the bay looking good. you have some sunshine and couple high clouds making their way across the bay right now. we're going to see plenty of sunshine most spots this afternoon. looks like temperatures still a little hot in spots inland 80s, some low 90s there. inside the bay temperatures mainly 70s to 80s. bay side 60s and 70s.

7:31 am
along the u.s.-mexico border where the investigation reportedly has turned up evidence of mistaken identity. and after the latest deadly message from a mexican drug gang, some people are wondering if the american jet skier will ever be found. cbs news correspondent don teague has the latest. >> reporter: it's a story that has captivated america, with more twists and turns than a best-selling crime novel t. began as a fun-filled day of jet skiing for tiffany and david hartley. it ended with murder and a mystery that has created an international uproar. the couple was attacked after visiting an old church that's on the mexican side of falcon lake and there are reports this morning that tiffany and david hartley may have been mistaken for members of a drug cartel and caught in the middle of a turf war. david was shot in the head and is presumed dead. tiffany escaped and called 911. >> are you sure that your husband got shot? >> yes, in his head. >> reporter: the days since the
7:32 am
shooting have been emotionally trying for david hartley's family and his wife, whose story was questioned by mexican authorities. one official saying, we're not sure. we're not certain that the incident happened the way they are telling us. >> you do feel like, you know, this is it, i'm never going to see him again. >> reporter: and the american sheriff investigating the shooting says he believes tiffany hartley, in part, because of blood evidence and eyewitness and this police dashcam video that shows the couple being pulled over on their way to the lake. family members initially criticized what seemed a lack luster effort by mexico to find harlley's body. >> please, negotiate. this we want david home. >> reporter: last wednesday the mexican army and police began a massive search using boats and military helicopters, dangerous duty in an area of mexico controlled by the heavily armed
7:33 am
cartel. >> these individuals possess the caliber of machine guns, rpgs, shoulder-fired grenade launchers. >> reporter: this week they murdered the lead investigator in hartly's case and delivered his head in a suitcase to the mexican army. >> it breaks my heart that people would do this to him. >> reporter: today, there is still no sign of david hartley's body and no end in sight to mexico's drug violence. don teague, cbs news, dallas. joining us now is fred burton, vice president of intelligence for the global intelligence company stratfor, a counterterrorism special agent for the state department and joins us live this morning. good morning, sir. >> good morning. >> as you've been able to sort of piece together all of this information, even from some distance, what do you make of it all? >> i think it's highly feasible that the hartleys were in the wrong place at the wrong time. they were identified by zeta
7:34 am
spotters, these are individuals that are posted as lookouts to keep an eye out for undercover agents, either from u.s. law enforcement or mexican law enforcement. and i think a set of dominos started to fall when they went out on the water and they were just certainly a victim of circumstances. >> this is a theory now. >> yes, that's a working theory of mine. but, i also know it's shared throughout the law enforcement community. >> because, now were the plates on the jet ski trailer mexican plates? >> yes, they were. and i think when you look at this in perspective, with my knowledge of working on the border violence issue for quite some time now, it's not unusual at all for these cartels to be on the lookout for any kind of individual that just doesn't fit, seems out of the ordinary. >> so, here they are, anglos,
7:35 am
mexican state plates on the jet ski. if there's a spotter on the american side of the border, somebody on the other side is going to know instantaneously. >> absolutely. the cartels have a very robust intelligence collection network on the ground. they use small little hand-held motorola radios, message texts and so forth just to report on the movements of individuals that don't fit. >> so then, there is this outcry and there is this response and something has to be done and the state department begins to become involved. and, as the mexican authorities start to investigate, there is a significant pushback, then, from the cartels. >> absolutely. the cartels own this geography and specifically the zetas, which is a very violent organization and their signature is the beheading of the mexican police investigation --
7:36 am
investigator, which is just absolutely horrible. violence is something they're quite used to. in essence, they're not opposed to picking up family members or loved ones of individuals and hold them for extortion and ran some, and so forth. >> and while the

7:40 am
jo we have been reporting how several big banks have stopped foreclosing on mortgages at least for now because they are not sure the paperwork is correct. now there is growing pressure on the banks to root out the cases of alleged mortgage fraud. this has become a huge mess that will impact millions of homeowners. cbs news business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here to tell us what it means for us. good morning, rebecca. >> good morning, maggie. >> how did we get here. >> it started long ago.
7:41 am
this is the thing people need to keep in mind. this mortgage mess and all these banks with mortgages and problems and potential fraud taking place, this didn't start yesterday but we became aware of it recently because of all of the problems in the overall housing market. but, it started long ago, when banks were going out giving out loans to anyone and -- anyone and everyone. >> for the asking. >> buy a home -- exactly, and started repackaging them, cutting them up, slicing and dicing them selling them off to new people. what that was a very lucrative business but now has come home to roost. >> who is the biggest offenders. >> bank of america is the biggest bank in america, on top of that wells fargo, gmac and citigroup are the biggest banks in the country right now servicing loans and many probably own loans people who are watching right now have. >> let's say you got your mortgage from bank of america initially. >> sure. >> doesn't mean b of a has your mortgage now.
7:42 am
how do you know who has it? >> that's important to realize. what that original mortgage note you signed when you basically bought your home who owns that now is important because whomever owns that now is the only bank that can legitimately foreclose on you. there's a website set up called wheresthe that's where you want to go to find out exactly who owns your mortgage note. you put in your personal information. i vetted the site. literally hundreds of thousands of have visited this site already because it is useful. >> what should i do with that information and why should i know that? >> first of all, even though you don't think you are facing foreclosure or dealing with mortgage fraud, this is important for any homeowner to know because it is important to know obviously who you pay your money to every month and whether or not it is legitimate. if you think you have actually come in contact with mortgage fraud or you've been the victim of that, you need to reach out to your attorney general like we've talked about here on the show and reporting, 50 attorneys
7:43 am
generals from all the states in the country are now pursuing this, they're investigating it. if you think you've been a victim, you need to let them know. that will help aid them in their investigation. >> very quickly. where are mortgage rates today? >> 4.27% the 30-year fixed rate mortgage, a the a low of all time records. >> do you think it will go up because of these investigations? >> likely, the investigations themselves won't impact the number. what will have an impact on the number, the federal reserve and its interest rate policy. >> of course we're watching that, too. >> yes. >> thank you so much. up next a kinder, gentler perez hilton. do you believe it? the very serious reason the queen of mean says he is changing his act here on "the early show" on cbs. >> i don't want to be a bully. i don't want to be called a bully. stains, down to a science. cer ] we've got new wisk, with our breakthrough stain spectrum technology targets all the major stain groups like proteins, carbohydrates and oils. its enzymes and cleaning agents tackle a full range of stains.

your chance of hitting a deer in that state, 1 in more than 13,000, harry. >> not a lot there, i guess. what are the best things you can do as a driver to make sure you and a deer don't come head to head? >> reporter: well, experts say one of the first things you should do if you come head to head with a deer while you're driving, don't swerve, that's one of the worst things you can do, you can actually make an accident even worse. and, also, if you see one deer, there are probably more since they travel in herds. and, also, check your insurance policy. not all insurance policies will cover one of these accidents, and they can be pricey, harry. >> last but not least, you are standing there in the deer-hitting capital of the world. have you seen any deer this morning? >> reporter: um, there is a deer behind me, but let me just say you don't want us to pan the camera over in that direction, harry. >> i understand, completely.

8:41 am
immature, you thought isn't this fun and this is great and we're kids. >> basically, it was there but the kind of thing that can morph into this so-called mothering. it is important to distinguish because women, i think we really do have this desire in some ways to take care of people. >> right. >> and that's not a bad thing. that's one kinds of mothering. >> but taking care of. >> this is different. >> taking care of them or acting like his mother, making decisions for him, letting him not have responsibility around the house, taking on all his burdens, making all the plans in the family. i was thinking of this couple i know she made all the plans and decided i'm for the doing that anymore and they sat home many saturday nights wondering what will i do now? because that was his roll, the mommy and decided on play dates. when she decided not to do it, he had no idea what to do with mself. >> a grown man, though. how do you make sure you don't get sucked in this so-called mothering trap and keep it from happening. >> you have to recognize it early. the fact that courteney cox said

wants to have sex with somebody she feels she is completely infantsizing here. >> it wasn't courteney cox apparently mothering david arquette. are those roles ever switched. >> exactly. sometimes we say she has a daddy but the daddy, mommy, the whole stigma, more about the fact that somebody in the relationship has all the power and the other person is just like a child like at home when your mother made all the decisions, can i go out, can i spend money, what can i do? you don't want to have a relationship that doesn't have an equal amount of power in some ways not meaning someone pays the bills and the other does nothing, it could be ying and yang, one person is shy and the other is out there. it is a balance. >> you have to recognize -- >> having somebody is an equal is really, really important and "he equal" is interpreted differently by every couple. >> lots of things to think about. thank you very much. >> thanks very much. >> creator and executive producer of csi anthony
